Evelyn is a business-minded person. She is 36 years of age and a widower. Evelyn is currently living with her three children in the village of Calaocan Santiago.
Evelyn runs an electronics sales and cell phone accessories business. She has been running this kind of business for eight years and she is glad because she is able to earn about PHP 3,000 a month. Evelyn's business is located inside the old public market of Santiago where she has two stalls. She has one stall for her cell phone accessories and one stall for her electronics appliances. Evelyn would like to request financial support due to the unexpected circumstances that happened to her husband. In this situation, her capital is no longer enough to provide for her family needs and cover all her household expenses. Evelyn is asking for a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy electronic appliances such as DVD players, speakers, cell phone accessories and other dry goods for her retail business. She hopes that she can improve her business to be able to obtain greater profits since she is now the breadwinner of the family. She knows that she can make things possible through the guidance of our Almighty God and hard work.
